Dear Girls Who Don't Wear Pants:

Now, I really didn't think I would ever have to write about this, because I thought the whole "legging" trend would go away, but it hasn't. And I have noticed a real increase of you no pants people since finals have started at school. I don't know why, but it was like all of sudden half the female population at John Marshall decided..."hey, I've been looking normal all semester, but it's finals time and I want to be comfortable, so I'm going to start coming to school with no pants on."And when I say no pants, I mean you girls who wear leggings with shirts that don't even cover your butts, with the leggings usually tucked into some boots. Now while I don't like leggings in general, I can understand why someone would want to wear them, they seem like they would be rather comfortable. What I have a problem with is when you people wear them like they are pants. Leggings are not pants, they are like a thick pair of tights. Would you wear tights and a shirt that barely covers your ass? Most people wouldn't. So you should not do that with leggings. I think this should be a rule, if the shirt you are wearing is not long enough to be worn as a dress, then you should not be wearing leggings under it. And when I say long enough to be worn as a dress, I mean something that covers well below your butt. This advice becomes even more important for girls who aren't exactly skinny. Because, as a wise girl once said "Spandex is a privilege, not a right." While I don't think being skinny gives someone an excuse to not wear pants, I think the chubbier you are, the worse the leggings look. I personally would never wear leggings because I think they would make my legs look so small compared to my chubby top half, that I would loook like an apple on toothpicks. Plus, it really helps show off that cellulite. You don't want to end up like these ladies... . So girls, please put some pants on, and if you are not going to, wear a longer shirt!
